The White House supported Kamala Harris after she was photographed with Ketanji brown, a newly confirmed Supreme Court justice nominee. Jen Psaki (White House press secretary) defended Harris after she was caught in a White House video indoors without wearing a mask. Harris had been “close to touch” with a staffer who tested positive for coronavirus.
“It was an emotionally charged and historic day. There were moments when she wasn’t wearing a masque indoors in include in photo,” Psaki acknowledged. However, Harris was defended for wearing one indoors “99.9 percent of the time.” ”
On Wednesday, the vice president’s office reported that Harris’ communications director Jamal Simmons had been positive for coronavirus. The Vice President is in “close contact “.
Harris was told she would “continue following CDC guidance”, but her public calendar would not change.
People who have been in close contact with the virus are advised to socially isolate themselves from others and wear masks.
Jackson saw Harris despite being infected with the virus.
Psaki claimed Harris wore masks indoors while she was visiting the newly-confirmed Supreme Court Justice. She didn’t wear a mask outdoors to celebrate her confirmation vote.
Psaki said that outsiders can greatly benefit from being outside when he was asked about his actions.
This argument was used to justify Harris’ decision to not hug Jackson even though he had been infected.
Psaki said that Psaki experienced an “emotional moment”. This is understandable.
